There are two ways to NOT think…

The first way to NOT think is below thinking… the knee-jerk reactions of that coiled reptile, salivating dog, and pecking pigeon inside of me–all primed to fight, flee, or freeze without deliberation.

The other way to NOT think is above thinking… the bare-naked ability to experience and respond to things as they truly are–beyond the stranglehold of reflex, instinct, training, preconception, self-deception, and self-righteousness.

Ascending to this rarified vantage point is no small feat… and not for the faint of heart. Getting there requires something utterly simple, yet extraordinary: the uncommon honesty, humility, and courage to see, hear, and admit what is right before and between your own eyes and ears.
